Having more than 12 years of experience in software development and testing, I currently work as SDE 2 at Microsoft on the ".NET Compiler Platform" project (a.k.a. "Roslyn") — the next generation of managed C# and VB.NET compilers, programming language tools and IDE. Among other things, my job involves participation in design of type systems and new language features, checking them for soundness and their actual implementation and testing.

I am also a member of TC49-TG2 (Ecma standardization committee for C#), currently working on the next version of the international standard Ecma-334.

Although I am not a professional mathematician, I hold a degree in theoretical physics, and I am very passionate about mathematics, especially about evaluation of integrals, sums and products in a closed form, foundations of mathematics, order theory, type theory, computability theory, graph theory and combinatorics.

comment Existence and uniqueness of a function generalizing a finite sum of powers of logarithms
Actually, for $x\in\mathbb N$ and any $a>0$ the fractional derivative assumes correct values (a finine sum of powers of logarithms), so it satifies the first condition and the second condition for integer arguments. Can we prove that it actually satisfies the second conditions for all real $x>1$, and that it is a convex and analytic function?

comment Existence and uniqueness of a function generalizing a finite sum of powers of logarithms
Yes, I tried, but I could not obtain any explicit form (or any form suitable for a numeric approximation) for the fractional derivative, neither I proved that it would yield the desired result (i.e. that all conditions in the problem statement would be satisfied).

comment Existence and uniqueness of a function generalizing a finite sum of powers of logarithms
Yes, for $a\in\mathbb N$ it does (although I haven't proved its uniqueness). But how to make sense of $\zeta^{(a)}$ for fractional $a$?

comment A couple of definite integrals related to Stieltjes constants
@Anastasiya-Romanova Because we know a value of a linear combination of two integrals, it's enough if we find a value of any of them (we would get the other one for free). Do you know a value of any of them?
